New Ripmax F-16


Anyone see the new F-16 at Ripmax? I don't think it is out yet but it looks pretty cool. It lists the weight at 250g and suggests micro servers (<9g).

You can see it at: http://www.ripmax.com/FS_AircraftEPScaleSport.html

It is the second F-16 link- not the ducted fan model. (will try attaching a picture)

Without RC-Komponents and Motor ( it´s an Speed 300 in the back of it) it´s got a weight of 81Gramms ***Hope on weekend the weather calms down to make some Test-flights....

great! You know of anywhere to get one other than Ripmax?(I am in the US). Is it easily assembled? Is seems it is very light but I would imagine it is probably no slow flyer. Let us know how your flights go. See ya.

Its quite simple to build , only the decals need some time .I also don´t think that it´s a Slow flyer , I suppose it´s quite manouverable .Seem´s that the weather is getting fine this weekend , so we will find out how this little Beauty goes..
P.S.
Going to attak some virtuel Taliban in the Backyard with it ...

Actually they are both pushers, the link you attached are F-18 Hornet copies, And the Ripmax is a f-16 Falcon and the F-18 is a speed 400 motor. Looked at these a while back but not into the fast and furious flyin just yet.

I think the F-18 has two vertical fins.

I stand corrected, they are both pushers. I didn't click past the Kyosho F-16.

The Robbe Hunter (F-16 style) is for Speed 400 pusher, the Ripmax (Scorpio) F-16 is for Speed 300. Jürgen
P.S.: Which one is better? I guess the Mpx Twin-Jet beats both of them.

@Jürgen ,
have you been sponsored by MPX ???? You can´t compare a tiny Speed 300 F-16 with a Twin Jet !!!! I have flown the F-16 this weekend , and i can tell you , this is the fastest Speed 300 Modell I´ve ever flown and the shape is just fantastic ,she looks great ***Try it , and you will think different about your Recycling Styro TJ

@Trecker: How many other Speed 300 direct drive models have you flown before? The only other model with Speed 300 pusher I have flown was a depron delta and it was pretty fast. Jürgen
